Lightning In A Bottle Photos Capture Magical Charm

Picture of Brenda Garcia Davidge
Updated: 12 January 2017
Lightning in a Bottle, a four-day music, yoga, and arts event, is so much more than just another summer music festival. With art installations scattered throughout the grounds, workshops on everything from meditation to modern and ancient kitchen traditions, and even a kids zone for younger festivals goers, LIB is magic. Going for the music is one thing, but soaking up the vibe, sunsets, art, and eclectic people is another. Offering a narrative outside of the traditional music festival, check out several photos from 2016’s event below.

Hammocks are a festival goer’s best friend. In the distance is Renegade Bowling where rolling a bowling ball through manmade hoops and rickety bowling lanes always ends in a victory dance.
